Gladiator thong sandals are all over Paris right now. Although I can’t wear them myself, I love the look of a pretty metallic sandal with dainty straps. Add a polished pedicure and you are set for just about any Summer outfit. But the gladiator sandals below are over the top. Fine for designer cat walk appeal and Russell Crowe in “the Gladiator” (without the heels), but a little silly for every day. I’m all for adding an edge to an ensemble, but not like this. A gladiator thong sandal has got to be pretty.
